Baffled as to why my company failed the UK's assessment for not having anti-virus on . It was a hard fail.

Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.

Assessors are

iasme.co.uk/

Anybody else come across this?

The Crown Estate has outlined 4GW of opportunity within the Celtic Sea for #FloatingWind πŸ‘πŸ€βœŠπŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ·σ ¬σ ³σ Ώ

There will be two project categories; early-commercial scale projects (around 300MW), and full-commercial (up to 1GW). Hiraeth Energy, a Wales-based developer supported by Afallen, has two project proposals that will fit within the early-commercial scale.

We have greater ambition; we want it to be the greenest. That's why we're so pleased to be able to contribute to a National Park City movement for Cardiff. Hoping to be able to share some more news about that before Christmas! β˜ƒοΈπŸ§‘β€πŸŽ„πŸŒŸ

I recently got a tablet with a stylus.

Can somebody suggest me an F-Droid app or any free software Android app for handwritten notes?

It can either be a soft keyboard or a note-taking app. Handwriting recognition and conversion is not really necessary, but nice to have.

Saving files to a directory on the disk would also be nice, since I intend to use Syncthing for backing up the files to other devices.

Please boost.

Ever wondered about the pathways for air pollution to impact on human health? πŸ€”β™¨οΈπŸ˜·

This primer from the European Environment Agency also includes a calculation of the mind-boggling costs of air pollution (TLDR; hundreds of billions across the EU and UK) πŸ’·πŸ’·πŸ’·πŸ’·

In case there weren't already sufficient reasons to mandate strong environmental limits to pollution.

πŸŒ‡πŸ”Œ How do we make Europe's cities - where 3/4 of us live - more sustainable? Some thoughts here from the Executive Director of the European Environment Agency πŸͺ΄πŸŒΌ
https://www.eea.europa.eu/articles/sustainable-cities-transforming-europes-urban-landscapes

We think that the National Park City Foundation concept has much to offer in this regard - and we are supporting the concept in #Wales. (Hopefully more news on that later this year!) πŸ—žοΈ

It can be overwhelming to think about the amount of data big tech has about us. But there are things you can do.

For example, you might be able to ask companies to give you a copy of your data. Read this guide to learn how πŸ’ͺ

The proportion of Wales' population that can speak Welsh fluently is 11%, with no change since 2013. Perhaps this marks the low point in numerical terms of Welsh speakers? #Cymraeg


Only 17% of Welsh speakers learned after primary school age, underscoring the vital role played by primary and nursery education, and on parents using Welsh with their children from birth.
